Released on April 27, 2015

Top 30 Tech and Telecom icon.The Top 30 Tech & Telecom list represents the largest green power users among technology and telecommunications partners within the Green Power Partnership. The combined green power use of these organizations amounts to nearly 8.9 billion kilowatt-hours annually, which is equivalent to the electricity use of nearly 843,000 average American homes annually.

SAP takes a holistic approach to sustainability and this recognition by the EPA is great validation for our environmental efforts. Since taking wide-reaching measures in 2008, SAP has reduced its carbon footprint by nine percent in spite of a strong company growth. SAP is committed to preserving natural resources and helping our customers do the same.
- Daniel Schmid, SAP America
